A.T. Trailblazers

A.T. Trailblazers are a community of donors who are passionate about the mission of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy to protect, manage, and advocate for the Trail. They provide generous support with gifts ranging from $1,000 to $9,999 annually.

To join the A.T. Trailblazers, please make a gift of $1,000 or more to our annual fund. The ATC will recognize your philanthropy on our website and in our publications, including the annual report and A.T. Journeys magazine.

As we approach our second century, we seek to protect not only a footpath, but an entire experience that includes the Trail’s surrounding landscape, scenic beauty, and natural resources. We do so for the millions of people who come together on the A.T. to seek refuge, create meaning and purpose, live out dreams, and make lifelong friends.

Your gift will make an immediate impact to advance our core priorities, which include protecting the Trail and surrounding landscape, providing a world-class A.T. experience for people from all walks of life to connect to nature, and inspiring the community of people who care about the A.T. to contribute to its stewardship.
